  • Japan's Shinto religion don't know much about the atmosphere of this place and never ending in the footsteps of the locals know their cultures naturally to. For more background information kushida shrine is located a 5-minute walk from Hakata Machiya Furusato Museum will be recommended.

  • This is the famous shrine in Fukuoka. Always crowded with worshiper. Very near kamikawabatamchi shopping street which is sort of good , food and Japanese traditional souvenirs and known as tourist center , also near Canal city.
  • Classy and beautiful shrine. You can see a huge "Yamakasa(山笠)", a kind of Dashi(山車), used for Hakata Gion Yamakasa(博多祇園山笠), a festival in July in Fukuoka City. This is a float decorated with a lot of ornaments like Samurai dolls, flowers and a small castle etc. It's just as gorgeous.
  • sacred and peaceful. I left before the July "山笠" festival started. But still can feel the passion of the folks
  • Beautiful ancient Shrine. Founded in 757 in order to worship Amaterasu and Susanoo. Nice clean and well-maintained. Not crowded..enjoy a short peaceful time here. Stop by if you are in the city.
  • An attractive shrine in Fukuoka, you cannot find another shrine with the same scale with this.
